We are using natural behavior and molecular biology to study the evolution of brain structures for vocal learning, and the latest exciting results.
Using the wide knowledge of the laboratory on songbirds, we are trying to better understand the meanings and functions of the ultrasonic vocalizations and communication in mice.
Find out how we are using the latest genome research techniques to characterize the molecular basis of the songbird vocal communication system.
We have been working with consortiums of scientist to sequence genomes of from multiple bird orders. We are using these genomes to study vocal learning using comparative genomics.
